Welcome to Mount Hermon Lodge No. 179

Mount Hermon

Established in 1886, we are proud to serve the community of Hyattsville through philanthropy and the development of good men. A unique feature of Freemasonry is that no man is ever invited to become a member; an interested person must approach the fraternity for membership.

Freemasonry offers much to its members: the opportunity to grow; the chance to make a difference; to build a better world for ourselves and our children; to practice universal benevolence. It offers a chance to work with men who share the same values and ideals.

The Tenets of our profession are Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.

We are taught to regard the whole human species as one family and conciliate true friendships. To relieve the distressed, is the great aim we have in view, being linked together by sincere affection. Truth is the foundation of every virtue. To be good and true, is the first lesson we are taught in Masonry.
